The comment of the reviewer above (Mr.Phillip) was so helpful. I looked at several brands myself, but just looking at the product made me feel that its well done. So finally I got my today and could not be happier. Great fit and finish and the Nikon D300 immediately recognizes the taking and all the features of great work. I wondered if the shutter button and the scroll wheel will be as good as Nikon and yes it was.

I rarely buy anything but a Nikon, but I thought that this will give a try and I'm glad I did. The Nikon MB-D10 grip is too large, its magnesium alloy and rubber coating, just like the camera, hence its expensive.

If you intend to place your camera in the rocks or if its going to take some 'beating bus in Africa or forests in the Amazon, then buy the Nikon. If you're a casual user, who keeps his camera in her purse all the time other than when its use, then buy this. You wont be dissapointed.

Nikon 55-200mm f/4 customer review

Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR
[Vibration Reduction] Zoom Nikkor Lens

Ownership of my Nikon back more than 30 years when the cameras were made of metal and an accountant with a few lenses tested your endurance.

Times have changed. There is hardly a camera in metal to be found and you can carry a bag full of equipment in one hand. The Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Zoom Nikkor is the last light from the heavy industry of the camera.

Plastic building into its lens mount. This thing looks and feels like the label must say Fisher Price and not Nikon. However, appearances can be deceptive as I soon discovered.

My only reason to buy this objective was that I needed to fill a void in my bag until I saved enough for a 70-200mm f2.8. I did not intend to keep the 55-200 VR, 70-200 once arrived.

After shooting 55 to 200 for a few months I've come to appreciate what it can do. It is limited to use in a good light because even VR can not change the laws of physics. In this case, it is not even the VR-II underway but that the original VR Nikon developed several years ago.

With adequate lighting and good technique, the 55-200 is capable of very good performance. No, this is not as sharp as the contrast and 70-200. It also does not survive the weather or a few solid blows that business use would expose it.

When 55-200 excels is in its portability and performance above average. Journey To walk it would be hard to beat this target if used within its limits. I use mine on a D80 and have no problem getting excellent 13x19 "prints.

As a bonus, it works very well with the Nikon lens CL3T close double and a macro zoom. Again, this is not a substitute for a real macro zoom like the Nikon 70-180, but it is not intended for.

Since my original review of this objective, I must admit I had a lot more than my money out of him. Instead of selling, I'll keep it and use it when my 70-200 is just big and heavy to carry.

If you're on a budget or just want a lens, Nice light in this range, take a look, the Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR. Like me, you may be surprised what it can do.

D300 vs D300s reviews

Nikon announced a new Nikon D300s, so I decided to post quick comparison between the Nikon D300 old and new Nikon D300s.

Generally, the new D300s that cameras like D300 in terms of features except the following.

  1. D300s will shoot HD movies at 720p resolution, 24 FPS with stereo sound. The maximum length is 5 minutes for 720p and 20 minutes for lower resolution video.
  2. D300s will be slightly faster than the D300, shooting 7 FPS mode g (Nikon D300 is a 6 FPS). With MB-D10 battery pack to shoot 8 FPS.
  3. Mode, new "Q" (quiet shutter - release) will be added right after its high-speed dial (continued).
  4. Card slot Dual - Nikon D300s will feature the two cards work with both CompactFlash and SD (SDHC-cards) as. Can be used as primary. Vice card can store a backup or overflow, or separate storage of NEF (RAW). and JPEG photos and images can be copied between cards.
  5. Active D-Lighting is now "Auto" and "Extra High" Add. "Auto" is expected to be both D700 and D90 has this mode. "Extra High" is something new though.
  6. Nikon D300s little hard D300 more than 15 grams total weight and weight 840g.
  7. Nikon D300s only "LV" (LiveView) and "Info button" on the back of the camera.

With the new Nikon D300s, Nikon launch entry level Nikon D3000 (which replace the D60) with two lenses improve - Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DX and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II. I'm really not interested 18. -200mm update as I sell my lens and I was shooting with primes rather quality, but instead of 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II certainly improving all the values have been waiting for. price point, but 70-200mm left scratching my head. my $ 2400 too expensive ... darn! $ 500 more than what the current generation of 70-200mm f/2.8 is for sale.

D300s is worth upgrading if you are not interested in D300 and video features (type of sucks because I was looking forward to full HD 1080p) is not worth the upgrade. D300s new sensor of the D300 is the same old ground. Is. D300s are two good slot and frame rate faster, but nothing special.
